Inter Milan will welcome AS Roma at San Siro Stadium for their second clash of the season. Both the teams have played draws in their last six meetings. However, Inter have won their previous six matches at home, and Roma have lost their last four away games on the trot.
In their last battle, Gianluca Mancini’s goal at 86th minute saved Roma from a defeat when Inter’s Hakimi had put them into the lead at 63rd minute.
The hosts will be without Arturo Vidal and Aleksandar Kolarov, but Antonio Conte has an entirely fit squad to pick from. The former Chelsea manager is expected to name a better starting lineup than the one that defeated Sampdoria last time.
Last week, Chris Smalling suffered a thigh injury against Manchester United, whereas Federico Fazio is suffering from tonsillitis. Pau Lopez, Jordan Veretout, Leonardo Spinazzola, and Daniel Fuzato have all been ruled out, while Amadou Diawara, Gonzalo Villar, Riccardo Calafiori, and Carles Perez are all uncertain. Gianluca Mancini is back in action after serving his ban.
Keeping in mind the form Inter is in, they have all the odds in favour to win. They thrashed Sampdoria 5-1 with a brace from Alexis Sanchez. However, Roma is also coming from a comfortable home win against last-placed Crotone by 5-0. Roma will look to fight hard to increase their chances to play Europa League next season.
